Prototype Insect Zoo

ISI’s ultimate vision is to build the world’s largest Biodome and biotech facility, focused on all things invertebrate. We are making great strides toward that ground breaking transformative vision. On the path to the Biodome, we plan to build a smaller, yet still the world’s largest (by species on display) insect zoo and biotech laboratory.

This will house at least 200 species of live exotic insects from all over the world and highlight ISI’s research. It will be a proving ground for not only our research but our educational displays and programs as well as our initial insect cultures and rearing techniques. The facility will have a modern biomedical technology style biomolecular research laboratory in the back. At the core and center of this facility near the front will be an illustration, likely a scale model, of our ultimate Biodome structure and facility. Here folks will not only learn amazing things about invertebrates, science, nature, biodiversity and biotechnology – they will also learn all about our plans for the new Biodome facility.

We will illustrate what the Biodome will be, what it will contain and why it will be a crown jewel of ISI and the city it calls home, and how such an institute is critical for educating the public about, researching and ultimately preserving life on earth.

Invertebrate Studies Institute’s mission is to inspire appreciation for and conservation of the natural world through invertebrate focused research, education, outreach, entertainment activities.
